What is a "Fahrzeugidentifizierungsnummer" ? (Germany)

I go to Munich in the Easter holiday, and found out, my Hotel is in a socalled "Umweltzone", and I need to get a sticker for the car. The form is on https://www.tuev-sued.de/auto_fahrze...en/oesterreich and they want me to fill in the "Fahrzeugidentifizierungsnummer".

Do they want my "Stammnummer" or "Typengenehmigung ?

There is another field for "Kennzeichen" which is License plates, so thats not it.

Thanks, Doc.

Re: What is a "Fahrzeugidentifizierungsnummer" ? (Germany)

I think it is the VIN ( Vehicle Indentification Number ) - related thread is here:
Vehicle Sequence number???

Reference

Quote:
Die Fahrzeugidentifizierungsnummer (FIN) ist eine international genormte Nummer, mit der ein Fahrzeug eindeutig zu identifizieren ist. Sie ist 17-stellig und besteht aus einer Herstellerkennung (zum Beispiel WME für Smart), einem herstellerspezifischen Schlüssel und einer meist vom Baujahr abhängigen, fortlaufenden Nummer.

Wo findet man nun diese FIN am Roadster, wenn der TÜV-Prüfer sie zum Beispiel bei der Abnahme sucht?

Am Fahrzeug ist sie auf einem Aufkleber an der inneren Tridionzelle der Beifahrerseite zu finden. Die fest eingestanzte Nummer findet man am Rahmen unter der Motorraumabdeckung (rechts oben). Meist ist sie hier noch durch eine dünne, durchsichtige Folie geschützt.

Hi Doctor,

Is that not the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on your vehicle?

This is usually a stamped metal plate which is riveted/welded inside the engine compartment, although many new cars also have it stamped into the chassis below the drivers seat and supply a flap in your carpet in order to view it.

Hope that helps.

Doh! Must type faster, jrspet beat me to it and supplied a photo

VIN numbers etc are useless for a sticker - they surely want your car's registration number??

You can get the German sticker at the TCS technical centres in Switzerland.
